How widespread are these web data URLs used? The "createUniqueWebDataURL" has been creating the URLs without the "/" appended, and the slashes (as far as I can tell) have been getting added only in the context of resolving location.href. So if there are other, non-location DOM nodes that contain the URLs, then adding the slash at creation might create a different kind of incompatibility.

My personal investment in this bug is over since I added a workaround in my copy of TinyMCE to avoid the issue I was seeing. Maybe it won't turn out to be a major issue for people, but I wanted to raise it so you can consider the implications.
